Details are emerging on quirk-meister director Wes Anderson's next film, "Moonrise Kingdom." Here's the synopsis:
Set on an island off the coast of New England in the 1960s, Moonrise Kingdom follows a young boy and girl falling in love. When they are moved to run away together, various factions of the town mobilize to search for them and the town is turned upside down – which might not be such a bad thing. Bruce Willis plays the town sheriff; two-time Academy Award nominee Edward Norton is cast as a camp leader; Academy Award nominee Bill Murray and Academy Award winner Frances McDormand portray the young girl’s parents; the cast also includes Academy Award winner Tilda Swinton and Jason Schwartzman. The young boy and girl are played by Jared Gilman and Kara Hayward.
Love that cast, especially the addition of Anderson newcomer Ed Norton. This will be Wes' first live-action movie since 2007's "The Darjeeling Limited" — although the more recent animated "The Fantastic Mr. Fox" fell right in line with some of the director's best work.
"Moonrise Kingdom" is slated for release in 2012.
